"Dunham’s ability to place Private Whitlock—and the reader—in the time and place of the Civil War, whether on the family farm in upstate New York, in the mind-numbing routines of military life, or in the battlefield environment of the Civil War’s Eastern theater makes this a meaningful and memorable contribution to the historical genre of Civil War letters literature."—Rod Gragg, author of Confederate Goliath: The Battle of Fort Fisher

From the book . . .
"oh how I do hope they can manage to settle this war up so we can reenforse our homes instead of the armey. that would be a more pleasing task to do. if half of the talk we hear is true they are doing thear best but I dair not hope to strong for fear the disappointment will be worse. but we will hope for the best and if it dont come we will put up with the worst."—Private William Whitlock
